No, you're upset because you misunderstood me and you hate Trump and think I'm trying to tie this to Trump. When in reality, I'm just calling out the media for their clickbait mentality they have put the masses through for the past few years.

Make sure you read that again slowly to ensure you understand it this time. Thanks in advance.

From the same guy who was screaming wolf at Iran's nuclear WMD fear mongering.

Ironic some will blame fake news in this, when in fact there are allegations Bibi helped set up an environment to load the news in his favor.


I think it's ironic you think it's ironic people don't trust the media in our current political atmosphere.


No one should trust all media (any, really IMO. No trust then verify, just verify)... But acting like anything that happens against a politician on the right is a product of "leftist media" would be just as disingenuous as when the left says they're victims of talk radio and right wing pundits.

It's up to us to think critically, and be skeptical of all media collectively, and decide if someone is guilty or not in circumstances like this.

To be honest, I don't know much about the case, and haven't looked into the "evidence" yet, hence why I've worded all of my posts as allegedly. But dismissing him just because of "left wing media" or conflating him with anything to do with Trump is just dangerous partisan bias IMO. How are we every going to root out bad politicians if every time someone tries to go after them, supporters scream foul?

It's Israel's attorney general not the media who has charged Netanyahu.
It's Trump not the media who has caused his impeachment troubles.

You credit the media with too much , unless you think everyone in your country is stupid and unable to think for themselves , granted this site shows many are but not all.

I'm brainwashed because I don't automatically accuse him of the crimes?

No , you're brainwashed because you equate a criminal case against a foreign leader with the self inflicted wounds of Trump.


People aren’t brainwashed simply because they don’t agree with you or trust a corrupt media.


Did the media indict Netanyahu, or did prosecutors? I'm confused now.

Well if you know where to go to look at the evidence then please link it because I can't find it. Hence my comment it looks like what the leftwing media is doing to Trump. I bolded the important part so you quit attributing absolutes to a post that doesn't do that.

I am thinking critically, just accepting that Bibi is guilty of all charges and not addressing the biased media as of late is not thinking critically.

I am beginning to doubt the intelligence of my fellow Americans
when I see videos of people cussing,screaming and flipping others'
off.These are things that people do when they're out of control and
easily triggered.

You're the one who brought him into this not me , perhaps you should read the title again slowly because this thread isn't about him it's about another allegedly corrupt politician.

I don't think we should assume guilt either, but I don't see how a prosecutor deciding there is enough evidence to indict has anything to do with media, unless the allegations against him are true, and he unlawfully loaded the media landscape in his favor with the use of his power.

And while we're on the subject of media and Bibi. What context are you speaking of this in? Israeli media, or ours?

According to World Israel News...The Israeli attorney general has
formally charged Netanyahu in a series of corruption cases.

Thank you. I've read some Haaretz articles, but from what I've gathered, they're quite critical of him. I'm trying to find some other Israeli sources that publish in English so google translate doesn't wash some intended vocabulary expressing nuance.

Times of Israel always freezes my browser, and others won't allow ad blockers which in turn freezes my browser.

I just found out that the Knesset has been given the task to
find a new prime minister.

This is seriously bad news for the people of Israel. Their military is in a low level war with Iran, indeed the IDF attacked 20 Iranian bases / targets I Syria yesterday and the people are anticipating some attack in retaliation from Iran or their proxies in Lebanon and Gaza, or even a direct attack by Iranoans. Now the strongman is going to face charges and nobody in politics over there can form a governing coaltion. Israel is effectively leaderless

Jake tapper has a sense of humor.
